For those of you that don't know, I will be doing a Discipleship Training School, with Youth With a Mission, for the next five months. My DTS is specifically focused on the idea of Compassion and successfully being a part of Cross-Cultural Missions. For the first three months, I will be staying at Ten Thousand Homes- U Village for the Lecture Phase. During this time I will be getting to know my teammates, reading books about missions, going to classes, and listening to lectures by inspiring people and missionaries from around the world. One of the focuses during Lecture Phase will be to learn how to be inspired to use our talents in order to be world-changers in every aspect of society. We will also be doing a lot of other things, including community outreach and maintenance work around the base. After this time, we will be doing our Outreach Phase for two months. This will take all of the things we will have learned in the classroom and apply it to real-life situations.
If you would like to know more about these programs, I really encourage you to check out YWAM's website and details about DTS. You can also look at Ten Thousand Home's website to learn more about the base's specific vision and focus. Thanks for your interest and support as I start this new chapter in my life with Christ! If you feel led to, please pray for the team. Pray that our personal lives would go smoothly and we would each be able to come up with the courage and the money in order to complete DTS. Pray that we would learn, serve, and have our hearts broken through the power of the Holy Spirit, and that we would not rely on our own strength. Thanks again!
